Steve Dayton is a versatile artist from Salt Lake City, Utah, creating in mediums such as wood, found objects, and digital painting. His assemblage works, which he dubs “absurd realities,” are boxed scenes of hand-built objects arranged in whimsical compositions. Dayton’s wood panel paintings range from the abstract “Cayucos series” to vivid California-inspired landscapes and seascapes. Bold and exaggerated colors mark his style, reflecting his eclectic background from California to Germany and his fondness for vibrant Hawaiian shirts and music from ukuleles and dulcimers. He invites viewers to engage with and find joy in his colorful and dynamic body of work.
